That's good then cos the white ones do go orange after a while

I think most would suggest the Rib Raider from Vtronix, seems to do the job well for a rib.

Al the best

So which DSC radios in the sub £200 price bracket do send NMEA data to a chart plotter? Standard Horizon GX-1500E is one of them, but not the Icom MC-M421. What about the Navman 7200? I want my otter to be able to display the position of a DSC distress call, so I need to get the right radio. I take it I am looking for anything with NMEA in and out?

Go for the Standard Horizon. Yes I'm biased as I sell them (and I have one fitted to the RIB), but to be honest, if the Icom doesn't have NMEA out (which it doesn't) the Navman really is not a contender. They just aren't up to the wet stuff.

Yep, that's included in the cost.

If you PM me an e-mail address I can send you a price list?
